Thank you, and after reading your comment :roll: , i slightly remember reading or hearing something like the 5 hill rim. At this moment i don't have time to recheck the following, but it might be from this demonstration that i do recall :arrow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIdKtf90rN0

This would be more inline with the meaning of the 5 raised edges of the raku chawan. Also, the representation of mountains carved or glazed into the exterior would fit this, too. But, the more common meaning I've read was it represented Mt. Fuji.

interesting video. one can see how the art of tebineri is strongly linked with chanoyu. the bowl is designed to second each gesture of the tea master, it's made to be felt in the hands

another traditional glaze for ohi is green:

Hey nice!

Do you generally put new pieces in boiling water, to clean them and all?

yes, but I pre-warm the bowl to avoid any thermal shock. if the bowl needs a deeper cleaning I use a soft toothbrush
